Welcoming Renters Home Quickly at Direct Wonen

Processing rental agreements electronically has helped Direct Wonen cut its online contract signing cycle from 1.5 weeks to 1.5 days. By replacing its paper-based solution with Adobe EchoSign, the largest real estate company in the Netherlands can easily process 20,000 contracts yearly.

Besides getting renters into new homes faster, the Adobe solution helps Direct Wonen minimize business risk, save money on document storage, and even provide straightforward integration with the company’s proprietary CRM solution.

“We considered designing our own system to manage and implement electronic signatures, but Adobe EchoSign already had all of the features that we wanted with an API that made integration incredibly easy,” says functional designer Kevin Veenman.

Integrating Electronic Signatures with your Website or Software

Now, by adding electronic signatures to your own company’s website or software, you can streamline and better manage digital documents — both coming in to your workflow and being sent out from it. Adobe EchoSign allows you to integrate electronic signature capability to your existing website, blog, or software with ease. The integrated solution looks and functions as part of your own website while still providing the level of trust and confidence provided by Adobe EchoSign.

For Your Website

Adobe EchoSign features the easiest signing experience in the industry and the ability to instantly send, e-sign, track, and file documents securely online. If you run your own website or blog, all you need is the EchoSign widget. It allows you to post a document or PDF form for e-signature to any page on your website with just a single line of HTML. For example, you could create a form on your website that all your partners or vendors must fill out as part of your new partner or vendor onboarding process.

Once you have an EchoSign account, all you have to do is click “Create Widget” on your Home tab and upload a document or PDF form. Then we’ll work our magic and give you the HTML code you need to drop into your website automatically. It’s as simple as that.

Once the page is set up you can point people there, and we’ll do the rest. Moments after someone e-signs your document, you (and your signers) will be e-mailed a PDF copy – and a copy will automatically be placed in your EchoSign account.  EchoSign creates an easy to follow audit trail and file management system to make the process completely seamless in a fraction of the time.

For Applications

If you want to get more advanced and actually integrate EchoSign into your own web app, you can do that too. All you need is the EchoSign API.

Adobe EchoSign has prebuilt integration with CRM platforms such as Salesforce.com, Microsoft Dynamics CRM and document management systems such as Box and SharePoint – these integrations are built on the same set of API that we make available to you and your developers. For example if you wanted to incorporate electronic signatures into your financial database or with an open source CRM platform, EchoSign would provide you with a complete professional solution.

The Adobe EchoSign e-Signature Platform utilizes Web Services API for communication with external systems. Web Services is a standard, secure and scalable method of establishing communications between web-based services.

The Adobe EchoSign API requires every developer to have a unique API key allowing them to integrate their solution to EchoSign while applying EchoSign’s permission model to the data they can create or access.

If you want to get started with using our API, sign up for a free Developer Edition today.

Tulare County Sheriff’s Department Eliminates Paper Contracts with Adobe EchoSign

PatchWstateSeal2The Tulare County Sheriff’s Department in California’s Central Valley helps ensure public safety with 1,300 employees in 21 offices in an area roughly twice the size of Delaware. Half of the county is public land, including the Sequoia and KingsCanyon national parks and the Sequoia and Inyo national forests. The other half is the nation’s second-largest producer of agricultural commodities.

Old methods of signing documents and exchanging information—scanning, faxing, and emailing—were slow and unreliable. In fact, the department even relied on volunteer couriers to take hard copies from office to office. Such methods inhibited accurately tracking the status of documents such as personnel forms, policy authorizations, and purchase requisitions.

Adobe EchoSign gave us an efficient, accelerated workflow that helped us process more than 5,000 contracts in just over one year of use,” says the public information officer, Sergeant Chris Douglass. “We don’t deal with paper forms anymore. A requisitions request needs three signatures and a final copy delivered to the business office. With Adobe EchoSign, the forms can be completed by all signatories and the business office can receive a signed and secure PDF copy all in less than a minute.”

Using e-signatures to eliminate the need to handle physical forms has enabled Tulare County to boost efficiencies while cutting costs. Find out more about how Tulare uses EchoSign for contract management here.

Kforce Reduces Time to Signature with Adobe EchoSign

kforce logo (2)Professional staffing frequently requires extensive documentation to verify and certify qualifications and licensures. In the fields of technology, health care, finance, and accounting, Kforce is a recognized leader in providing high-quality consultants and direct hire personnel.

However, complying with client and regulatory requirements is often extensive and time-consuming. Kforce vendor services supervisor Ryan Coyle says highly skilled positions can require more than 20 separate documents, including profile forms and standard contracts.

“Vendor documents are typically signed by two or three stakeholders,” he says. “In the past, documents would be filled out by hand and scanned or faxed multiple times—a process that took several days and often resulted in an illegible copy.”

Kforce created simple workflows using Adobe EchoSign, for emailing documents among stakeholders. They can access forms and add e-signatures online from any browser on any device. When completed, a clear, archive-ready electronic copy is automatically sent to stakeholders, which reduces errors and creates a more reliable archive of records.

It also saves time. Coyle says his team has dramatically reduced turnaround time for document signing and processing—from two business days to less than two hours.

Sunflower Electric Power Corporation Maintains Legal and Regulatory Compliance with the Help of Adobe EchoSign

sunflower logo (2)As a regulated utility, Sunflower Electric Power Corporation is routinely required to submit signed documents within strict deadlines. To meet these deadlines, the group administrator used to have to track down signatures, which was both difficult and time consuming, especially considering that Sunflower’s territory covers the western third of the state of Kansas.

By implementing Adobe EchoSign, Sunflower has helped create a seamless, automated workflow. Remote workers can sign documents online, electronically. And with the Mega Sign feature, a single document can be sent easily to thousands of recipients, and EchoSign automatically records each transaction and signed document.

“Mega Sign shows the power of Adobe EchoSign,” says Maree Percival, corporate services specialist for Sunflower electric Power Corporation. “We had an immediate need for all 400 employees to sign a policy update agreement in less than 20 days. People were on vacation, remote, busy with other things, and we still collected all e-signatures—with zero errors—on time.”

120105_KIA_Basic_Final(CS2)Maintaining the quality and security of documents in a process that involves a high number of signatures is easy at Kia Motors America. That’s because KMA uses Adobe EchoSign to collect e-signatures and automate the contracts it manages at nearly 800 dealerships.

Franklin County, PA Eliminates the Hassle of Obtaining Multiple Signatures

FranklinCountyColorManaging economic development and public service in a growing county puts demands on government that can negatively affect efficiency and fiscal responsibility. In an effort to simplify its processes and cut costs, Franklin County, Pennsylvania has developed a paperless document solution that uses Adobe EchoSign, for electronic signatures.

Not long ago, Franklin County’s 57 departments required vendors and employees to submit documents in triplicate for approval by county officials. Consequently, officials were buried in paperwork with inefficient audit trails. Now employees submit electronic forms to the county’s Laserfiche document management system, which prompts them to submit contracts for e-signature through Adobe EchoSign.

“Adobe EchoSign automatically delivers contracts to all of the required stakeholders, no matter how many signatures we need,” says Ed Yonker, application software specialist at Franklin County. “EchoSign gives us a clear audit trail every step of the way, adding visibility into government processes and helping the County meet compliance regulations.”franklin county visual (2)

EchoSign automatically reminds officials about pending contracts and allows them to submit securely encrypted signatures from any device, including smart phones. By eliminating multiple paper copies, Franklin County saves money on printing, frees physical storage space, and enables a mobile workforce.

NewVoiceMedia Simplifies Contracting with Adobe EchoSign and Salesforce

NewVoiceMedia_Logo (2)Little efficiencies add up to big improvements at NewVoiceMedia.

The company specializes in cloud-based contact center solutions, which enable organizations to handle telephone-based customer service and sales calls using only the Internet and desktop computers. With business expanding to 30 countries on six continents, NewVoiceMedia determined that it needed to switch from paper contracts to online contract signing using Adobe EchoSign.

Both salesforce.com tools and Conga Composer integrate easily with Adobe EchoSign, which helps NewVoiceMedia issue contracts for e-signature with greater speed and fewer mistakes. In fact, NewVoiceMedia strategy director Bethany Ayers says it even helped close an upsell deal with a client who had been too busy to respond.

“Once we sent the contract through Adobe EchoSign, we got it back 15 minutes later because our client could just e-sign it with his iPhone,” she says.

Adobe EchoSign simplifies and streamlines the sales cycle by increasing the sales team’s productivity and improving customers’ experiences. It also makes life easier by helping prevent lost documents and allowing access at any time from any device.

“It’s more about how much faster we can get all our business in and closed as opposed to the efficiency of each individual deal,” Ayers says.
